Geomagnetic Storm in Progress
Space Weather News for Oct. 30, 2003

A severe geomagnetic storm is in progress on Oct. 30th. It began at
approximately 1700 UT when a coronal mass ejection (CME) struck our
planet's magnetic field--the second such impact in as many days. The CME
was hurled toward Earth yesterday by an X10-class explosion from giant
sunspot 486. Sky watchers at all latitudes should be alert for auroras
after local nightfall.
